comment How to extract the name of a macro?
Fails if the escape character is non-printable (try \escapechar=-1 just after \begin{document}).

comment Error during installation of TeXLive 2012 in Fedora
@vonbrand True, but if you want a 'vanilla' install (say so you have tlmgr available to update every day), then I'd image the issue is the same.

comment Beamer allowframebreaks default option
Writing a document isn't coding, and I suspect Till would say that two frames with the same title suggests that they are actually a (sub)section and you're abusing the title of the frame :-) More importantly, presentations are visual things, and therefore automatic breaking is very unlikely to make good decisions.

comment Beamer allowframebreaks default option
A short answer here is going to be 'you can't, at least easily', I'm afraid. Till was really not keen on the idea of auto-breaking frames, and the 'reset' for the appropriate key is buried inside \beamer@@@@frame. This can probably be removed using etoolbox, and the key then fixed as true using \setkeys{beamerframe}{allowframebreaks}. However, this is really against the whole concept of how beamer is structured.

comment Siunitx installation: I can't find file l3docstrip.tex
I need to check if the latest .tds.zip has the file placed correctly: if not I'll adjust our build script for the next (imminent) CTAN snapshot.

comment letter document class and babel/magyar not compatible any more?
With my updated-today TeX Live set up, I get magyar.ldf 2005/03/30 v1.4j (other file versions identical). Did you install something by hand? (There are a number of versions of magyar.ldf in circulation, and one of the big challenges for babel is sorting this.)

comment Siunitx installation: I can't find file l3docstrip.tex
Although it's possible, I strongly recommend people don't unpack code themselves but rather use their package manager or .tds.zip files for installation. Of course, I am willing to get you sorted: as I say it is quite possible to do this unpacking yourself, if a bit tedious. To give more help, I'll need to know the version of l3kernel you have.

comment Siunitx's \micro symbol has serif
You can adjust the definition, but why do you expect there to be no serif here?

comment \everymath and author color
@Frank Well, you can do vertical centring without math mode, but when LaTeX was written the overhead was too big :-) I guess we'll use the coffin mechanism for this in L3: no math mode needed, no strange effects!

comment Is a “real” Baskerville font available for LaTeX?
@KOF As others have said, there are a lot of (electronic) fonts claiming to be Baskerville. Could you point to what you feel is the 'real deal', either electronic or in metal?

comment How to detect whether “I'm on arXiv.org”?
I'm not quite sure what you can use to detect what system things are being run on unless you know that there is some testable information set by the platform. Presumably that requires insight into the arXiv set up, which we can't really offer.
